A draft landscape plan has been created for new bushwalking tracks within previously inaccessible areas of a prominent mountain on Qld’s Sunshine Coast.

Local Sunshine Coast Council has developed the plan to provide more opportunities for people to explore the Mount Ninderry Environment Reserve, in a way that the council says conserves the area’s ecological and cultural values.

The Sunshine Coast News says it was prepared in partnership with the Kabi Kabi First Nations people and through targeted workshops with councillors, reserve neighbours, key stakeholders and community groups.

The community can participate in planning for the mountain’s future by sharing their views before July 15.

Kabi Kabi man Kerry Jones told the Sunshine Coast News Mount Ninderry was a significant landmark to the Kabi Kabi people.

“It’s a part of our storyline, our legend that is connected to all these significant mountains and rivers around here,” he said.
